The lake itself is important to Chautauqua Lake real estate owners and an integral part of the area's history. There have been many theories as to what the name 'Chautauqua' means in the Seneca language. The lake resembles a bag tied in the center; it has a narrow middle, with a northern and southern basin at each end. Thus, the favored translation of the word 'Chautauqua' is 'bag tied in the middle.'
Real estate on Chautauqua Lake's east side is afforded amazing western sunset & sunrise views. The northern basin has great golf options including Chautauqua Golf Course, Chautauqua Institution Golf Course, and Willow Run Golf Course. There are also great state parks in this area, such as Long Point State Park and Midway State Park, as well as the Chautauqua Marina. Chautauqua Lake homes on the north end are also just a stone's throw from great shopping and excellent restaurants.
